Argan Oil Facts
Today Argan oil is one of the rarest oils in the world. It’s made from the fruit of the ancient Argan tree which grows in Souss valley south east of Agadir and north east Essouira in Morocco.
The Argan tree is believed to date back to the Tertiary period and back in the day covered North Africa and mainly due to climate change and over harvesting now exists only in south west Morocco.
The Argan fruit is the size of an olive, which at first is green in colour, then as it matures begins to turn yellow. Once ripe the colour changes gradually to reddish brown and the fruit is harvested in late July. A typical Argan tree will yield about 8 kilograms of fruit which is cold-pressed to extract Pure Argan Oil.
Cold-pressed oil contains no water, so the oil is pure. The main advantage to this is that the oil has a shelf life of 2 years as opposed to a few months because any water content would encourage oxidation and the oil itself would begin to degenerate within a short time.

The Berbers of south west Morocco have used Argan oil for centuries in a variety of ways. Pure Argan oil is deodorised and therefore has no scent, it can be applied to skin, nails and hair to nourish, enrich and moisturise these areas.
